seems to work better :-), imho still is not as smooth as 3.4, I would 
love to know *why* we get this behaviour now in >=3.5, is something 
triggering Resize() more often now ( and why indeed is Resize even 
called when scrolling ). Additionally I am a but nervous about changes 
to the TextEngine  ( a piece of code I have no familiarity with at all 
). Saying that the change you made seems quite small ( despite the 
confusing diff due to the whitespace changes ) I suppose it is the last 
part of the patch that is really necessary. But still it just feels 
wrong that we need to tweak the TextEngine and I wonder are we 
correcting a side affect rather than fixing the root cause ( but of 
course your change might even be valid regardless of the IDE 
(mis)behaviour or maybe even entirely correct for the IDE problem, I 
confess I haven't got a clue ). I cc Kohei here too who having looked at 
the editeng recently might ( but maybe not ) have some opinion.
